1、英国国教会曾认为《口袋妖怪》中的超梦是个基督教徒的理想楷模。

任天堂游戏中的角色超梦首次登场是在电子游戏《口袋妖怪红蓝宝石》以及它的续集当中。有些人认为他是典型的反派,而另一些人则认为他是个深刻而有趣的角色。

5. Back to football. The England national amateur football team once beat France 15-0.

6. America spells grey as gray and England spells gray as grey.
6、“灰色”这个单词,美国人拼成“gray”而英国人拼成“grey”。

It's easy to keep in mind: simply associate "A" with America, "E" with England.
其实非常好记,美国(America)的“gray”里有个“A”,英国(England)的“grey”里有个“E”。

7.French was the official language of England for about 300 years, from 1066 till 1362.

8.In 1811, 1/4 woman in England were named Mary.

Can you imagine that the quarter of all British women had the same name then? Perhaps it was rather confusing in everyday life.
你能想象那个时候整个国家四分之一的人都拥有同一个名字吗?她们的生活会很困扰吧。
